Employing experienced, talented and qualified individuals is essential, but equally important is recruiting someone with the right values and drive.
We believe the right person ‘fit’ is equally important to the organisation. We are a strong organisation, with staff who work co-operatively, who share similar values and who work as a team to succeed.
Our working environment is supportive, innovative, strives for quality, and values every member of the Co-operative as equals.
We are a not-for-profit agency with values to support this ethos and our goal is to make a positive difference to the life of a child in our care.
So what are those values?
“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter”
As an organisation we expect our staff to conduct themselves in a professional way; we provide the services expressed in our Statement of Purpose; we honour our commitments and promises; we stand behind our foster carers and support them in caring for the children in care safely and positively.
“Quality means doing it right when no one is looking”
We work tirelessly to ensure the service we provide to our foster carers is of high quality through training, development and providing unparalleled support to foster carers. We never cut corners and the outcomes demonstrate this commitment.
“Shortcuts are built on sand, while integrity is forged with iron”
Integrity is the lifeblood of our business. It separates our organisation from the rest. We believe that doing the right things for the right reasons, and treating our carers and staff fairly and with respect are fundamental to our success.
